Omron has appointed Henry Zhou as the new Managing Director for its operations in the Oceania Region. Zhou is currently General Manager of Omron Oceania (Australia and New Zealand), and will assume the new position from 1st April, taking over from Greg Field who is retiring after 17 years in the role.

Zhou first joined Omron in 1998 in Singapore before moving to Sydney the following year. He has held several prominent roles with the company including Sales Engineer, Product Manager, State Sales Manager NSW, and Business Planning & Marketing Manager. He is a qualified automation engineer and holds an MBA from RMIT University.

Zhou says he is honoured to lead Omron Oceania into the next decade through its next phase of growth, adding: “Today, we are at the doorstep of the fourth industrial revolution. It will change the world fundamentally.

“This exciting new era presents outstanding opportunities for a broad range of industry sectors.

“Through our innovative technology and global industry strategy, Omron is well positioned to take a lead in our market.

“I look forward to leading the company to new performance heights as we partner with business to develop innovative and cost-effective Industry 4.0 solutions.”

Zhou thanked Greg Field for his outstanding achievements in his 28 years of service with Omron. “I wish Greg all the best for the future. During the past 20 years, he has been a great leader, mentor and friend.”

Field, in turn, congratulated Henry Zhou on the appointment. “I feel Oceania is in a strong position with a good management team which will now be led by Henry Zhou.

“Henry has a wealth of experience in management and engineering and a strong record of leadership,” said Field.
